Sunshine Week

This is the week of the year when journalists and others highlight the citizens ability (or inability) to get at government records. The House is scheduled to vote this week on the Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 2007. The Senate Judiciary committee will be holding a hearing, "Open Government: Reinvigorating the Freedom of Information Act" this Wednesday.

Want to read a little more on how the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is used? Check out the Denver Post article "Big week for freedom of information."

Want to learn more FOIA itself? Check out the library's guide.

Finally, for those of you who love to read those previously hidden government documents, check out the library's guide to declassified documents.
